The Black Market: The Month In Metal August 2014
Aug 29, 2014 8:39am | StereoGum

Guys, I usually kick off the Black Market with a lengthy introductory essay, an aggregation of my thoughts on the month in metal. But August … August kinda ate me alive. That is not to say that I don’t have thoughts, nor that August didn’t generate enough thoughts to inspire an essay. I do! It did! And then some! Truth is, this past month delivered a lot more than I could possibly sum up in this space, and you’re gonna read about/hear a whole lot of it below anyway. So this month, I’m gonna cut short the preamble and get right to the music.


Chastity Belt Black Sail (Stereogum Premiere)
Aug 29, 2014 8:27am | StereoGum

Chastity Belt put out the wonderfully titled No Regerts earlier this year, which takes a more serious tone than Julia Shapiro’s other project Childbirth (who got 2014 off to an awesome and funny start with the maniacally impish “I Only Fucked You As A Joke“). Chastity Belt’s dynamic was established in part by the stylish black and white video for “Full” this winter. Now here’s another dramatic clip. “Black Sail” begins with a group of settlers burying a body and performing a funeral, and it’s best to just leave it at that. Be warned that this gets pretty violent, but it lends a somber gravity to subject matter that’s a heavy trope in 2014. Watch it below.


Definitely Maybe Turns 20
Aug 29, 2014 8:16am | StereoGum

Back in April, we marked the 20th anniversary of Britpop with Stereogum’s Britpop Week. We chose the date for a few reasons — the week marked the anniversaries of both Pulp’s His ’N’ Hers and Blur’s Parklife, Damon Albarn was conveniently releasing his first solo album almost to the day of Parklife’s 20th birthday, and it fell just after April 11, the day Oasis released their first official single, “Supersonic.” Though “Columbia” had been circulating for some time before that, the band hadn’t yet caught fire. “Supersonic” was the first in a stretch of three singles (followed by “Shakermaker” and “Live Forever”) that drummed up excitement for Oasis’ debut before its August 29, 1994 release. Which, you know, worked, considering Definitely Maybe was the fastest-selling debut album ever in the UK to that point.


Hear Patrick Carneys Theme To New Animated Netflix Series BoJack Horseman
Aug 29, 2014 8:14am | StereoGum

BoJack Horseman is a new animated sitcom on Netflix about a washed-up sitcom star who happens to be an anthropomorphic horse-person. The first season is already streaming, and there’s a second one on the way. The show has a very serious cast of voice talent, with Will Arnett in the lead role and Aaron Paul, Alison Brie, Amy Sedaris, and Paul F. Tompkins backing him up. And the show’s creators also roped a big name into doing the theme music. Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is responsible for the loungey minute-long instrumental that soundtracks the opening credits; check it out below.


Album Stream Premiere: Zeahorse Pools EP
Aug 29, 2014 8:00am | CMJ

Australia is never lax coming up with angular, grimy, quitar-shard rock. If that’s your bag of glue, then this U.S. debut EP from Zeahorse will quench your nose. There are slight hints of those early ’90s totem poles: U.K. shoegaze and U.S. grunge, but there’s also a welcome clarity. The production never just slathers on easy coats of distortion all the time, leaving the bass to sometimes cut the song in two and the singer’s desperate pleas to squelch through, making this feel fresh as a 15-year-old pair of jeans right out the dryer.

Today, right now, you can stream their debut EP, Pools, exclusively here at CMJ before it drops officially next Tuesday, September, 2, via Dine Alone Records. The band is also slated to play CMJ Music Marathon, though the details are still to be hammered out. For now, check the sonic hammering, below, and their recent video for Pool below that even. And below that? Their most updated tour dates.

Tour Dates For Zeahorse:
09/13 – The Park Bar & Grill – Burbank, CA
09/17 – Solar Culture – Tucson, AZ
09/18 – The Prospector – Long Beach, CA
09/23 – Soda Bar – San Diego, CA

Blut Aus Nord releasing 'Memoria Vetusta III'
Aug 29, 2014 7:55am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Blut Aus Nord love their trilogies more than Hollywood. The French black metallers have a new album on the way and it's adding another chapter to a series started in 1996. Memoria Vetusta III - Saturnian Poetry will be released on October 10 via Debemur Morti Productions.

As you can see in the art above, Memoria Vetusta III should shift Blut Aus Nord away from the Lovecraftian and industrial creepy-crawlies and back to the epic, synthy, and lead-heavy black metal typical of the Memoria Vetusta collection. The previous entry, Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue with the Stars, was released in 2009. Blut Aus Nord already have two 2014 releases under their belt, the celebratory Debemur MoRTi EP and the Triunity split with P.H.O.B.O.S. In 2011, leader Vindsval talked with Bob Furtado in an interview translated for Invisible Oranges.

The Memoria Vetusta III tracklisting along with streams from the previous Memoria Vetustas appears below.

The Black Keys Patrick Carney pens theme song for Netflixs BoJack Horseman
Aug 29, 2014 7:54am | Cosequence Of Sound

Amidst the release of The Black Keys new album and subsequent world tour, drummer Patrick Carney found time to pen the theme song for Netflix’s new animated series, BoJack Horseman.

The show stars Will Arnett as washed up ’90s TV star (who also happens to be a horse). Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Paul F. Tompkins, and Aaron Paul also voice characters.

As Cleveland Scene points out, Carney collaborated with his uncle, saxophone player Ralph Carney, for the instrumental theme. You can listen to the song and watch the official trailer below.

Further (pre-Beachwood Sparks) get best-of compilation (stream it); The Tyde touring with Christopher Owens (dates)
Aug 29, 2014 7:00am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Before they formed Beachwood Sparks and The Tyde, Brent and Darren Rademaker spent a good chunk of the '90s making noise with their band Further. (Not to be confused with Grateful Dead offshoot Furthur.) Having survived life in slick major label band Shadowland in the late '80s, the Rademakers discovered Dinosaur Jr and did a sonic about-face, releasing a string of singles and albums from 1992 - 1996 on labels like Bongload (home of Beck's "Loser") and Creation imprint Ball. (They also actually toured with Dino Jr. which Lou hoped would annoy J Mascis.) All of their discography is out of print but a new compilation titled Where Were You Then? will be out next week (9/2) via Bad Paintings that cherrypicks 13 tracks from their 7" and EP releases. (Order yours.) We're premiering a stream of the whole compilation which you can listen to below.

Meanwhile, the Rademakers will be out with The Tyde opening for Christopher Owens on a few West Coast dates of his fall tour. The Tyde haven't played the East Coast since CMJ 2006. Those dates are listed, along with the Further compilation stream, below..

Uziah Sticky Thompson: the man who shaped modern music without you even knowing it
Aug 29, 2014 6:59am | Fact Magazine

You’ve heard a lot of Uziah Sticky Thompson, who died this week aged 78.

Even if you don’t know it, you have. As one of Jamaica’s elite session musicians, he became an integral part of the sound of Sir Coxone Dodd, Lee Scratch Perry, Joe Gibbs and Sly & Robbie, creating the “riddims” that have echoed through the decades via reggae’s versioning and dance music’s samplism.

He was right at the heart of rocksteady and ska, played on several of the all-time landmark 1970s reggae albums The Wailers’ Burnin’, The Congos’ Heart of the Congos, Culture’s Two Sevens Clash among others and went on with Sly & Robbie to join the Compass Point band, who played on an impeccable run of early 1980s records with Grace Jones, Tom Tom Club and Gwen Guthrie. It was through this that his rhythms reached right into the heart of modern club music. He recently described the job of a percussionist as seasoning, which is as good a description as any: without him, whole sections of modern music would have a lot less flavour.

Whole books could be written about the records he’s contributed to, but as a brief tribute, here are ten all-time classic Sticky situations (and one illustration of how he kept his groove well into old age).

Rustie - Green Language
Aug 29, 2014 6:28am | Drowned In Sound

Danny Brown had an image problem. Until Old, he was a molly popping, kush smoking, fellatio lovin machine. The rapper of choice if you wanted whip-smart rhymes and a hella good time. Then he decided that was all very well, but hed rather be taken seriously. So 10 songs of his third album were about growing up in the Detroit projects, living off food stamps and pushing drugs when he should have stayed in school.

As for the other half? That was one final hurrah to the party animal of yesteryear, and heralding its arrival was Dope Song; a hyperactive fizz of 8-bit synth pyrotechnics produced by Rustie. Because if you needed a DJ to fulfill that caricature, he was the one to call. Now guess what's gone and happened with Green Language...

In fairness to the ebullient Scot, his second album isn't what you'd describe as 'mature'. It's just not Glass Swords. That breathless exploration of treble, bass and the extremities between them both has been slowed a little, and Green Language comes stuffed with a lot more features. The result is a different proposition to Rustie's debut, one that's akin to what his Warp label mates Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke have been up to recently.

Where Blood On The Leaves' and Kendrick Lamar fixate on a cast iron concept, Green Language isnt tied to an overall theme. Collaborators like grime veteran D Double E, producer Redinho and hip-hop duo Gorgeous Children are simply peop...
